At the onset of the One Year War in UC 0079, Kai Shiden lived in the space colony Green Oasis in Bunch 1 of Side 7.
Kai Shiden is tall and lanky in stature with a mop of gray hair, and
his snarky and sarcastic personality often gets him scolded or slapped
around. After surviving the Zeon attack on Side 7, Kai evacuated to the Pegasus class assault carrier SCV-70 White Base
to make his escape. However, due to a shortage of crew and soldiers to
staff the battleship Kai was asked to become a pilot to help defend the White Base from the frequent Zeon attacks. Kai was assigned to pilot the RX-77-2 Guncannon mobile suit. The unit he would remain in charge for the rest of the One Year War.

and investigative reporter. In UC 0087, during the events of the Zeta Gundam TV series
